Project Runway

I watched the premier episode while working today - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that they re-run it!
I, too thought the winner was amazing - I had marked his and Ping Wu's as my 2 favorites.
I loved the detail work on the bodice - which appeared to be impeccably executed - the juxtaposition of the geometry and the circular designs - how the geometry of the top echoed the geometry of the print - and yet how the full circle (appeared) skirt echoed the shape of the motif in the print...then how those dark bands swinging (did they - or were they 'attached' to the skirt?) pulled - connected the darks in the bodice down into the skirt.
I truly feel that this season's talent takes us back to the level - if not even above - that of the initial season.
Pin Wu's no 'Hanger appeal'? Sew - if I had a store - a boutique, you bet your booties I'd put her garments on a mannequin and they'd sell - sell - sell! I thought her model was far too dull for her design though...hope she selects a more dramatic one to match her style next time!
HOW they do this all that quickly is BEYOND ME - my wildest imaginations!!!

Hi Londa!
I googled creative + sewing blogs and your blog was number one so I clicked on it!
I love that you are bold in claiming to love the Lord Jesus!
I do too!
I love to sew and maybe soon will get some of my stuff on my site!
Be blessed and I will come back often!
And oh, yes, I love Project Runway.
Why don't we do a Christian Project Runway!!!
:) in Jesus,
